An Update to GregTech has been released!
Cue the fully automatic Changelog:
Yep, I decided to add a new Tree, kinda wanted a way to get Podzol, so here it is, a Blue Spruce (Yes that Tree is an actual “Evergreen” that exists). The Christmas Tree Shape is purely coincidental, but July is only two months away so better prepare! XD
[NOTE] Erik3003 changed a tiny bit of the Internals of the Moderated Reactors, everything should still work as usual though.
[COMPAT] Caveworld 2 now generates Stone Layers too. Its Ore Blocks will not be replaced though, so you get its Vanilla-alike Ores inside my Stone Layers. by the way did you know its “Universal Chest” is an Enderchest that goes across Savegames? Neat, isn’t it?
[COMPAT] Better Storage has some things been done to, but not much. I could not assign Material Data to its Chests and Stuff due to them using NBT instead of MetaData…
[COMPAT] Et Futurum Requiems Copper Blocks and their Variants are now properly supported and not exploitable anymore.
[FIXED] I messed up Ardite and Aredrite. That should be fixed now.
[CHANGED] Bookshelves now count Writable Books and Written Books for Levels on the Enchanting Table. Same goes for GT Books and most other things that look enough like Books, some of which even count as Enchanted Books.
[CHANGED] Bookshelves made of Magical Materials will give an additional Bonus to Enchantment Power. Greatwood and Livingwood would be a good example of ones that you can get for cheap.
[CHANGED] Burner and Cryo Mixers now have Parallel Processing like the Normal and Electric Mixers.
[CHANGED] Bedrock Ores can now overlap, so you can get a Bedrock Ore Spot with two or more different Bedrock Ores generating in it. However this is insanely rare, so do not try to go search for it! (I had to x10 the Bedrock Ore Probability in order to find just one of this in Superflat)
[CHANGED] Bedrock Lava Springs in the Nether got nerfed to 500 times less Output (so still twice as good as Overworld Lava Springs). Only applies to newly generated ones though!
[CHANGED] Fluid Pipes will now show all Fluids that are currently somewhere within all connected Pipes, when hit with a Magnifying Glass.
[ADDED] Spray Cans can now be used to dye Sheep, Wolf Collars and Grass (if their Color is applicable). So you no longer need to Silk/Spade Harvest Grass to Bath/Craft it into one of the the 4 dyed Variants, and it is easier to spawnproof your Lawn that way.
Can be found in Mountainous Biomes.
Its Planks are White, and the Tree is quite tall on average, making it a very good Wood Source.
It also turns Dirt and Grass to Podzol below, making it far easier to get that Stuff renewably now, similar to how it works in later Versions of Vanilla Minecraft. (remember: Spades are super easy to use for digging Stuff like Podzol)
When Biomes o’Plenty is installed it will drop Pinecones, that are now registered as Windfall to Forestry, and they also finally got a Biomass Recipe assigned to them that I originally forgot about.
During certain periods of time it will turn into a Christmas Tree.
